Thank you 2014 and welcome 2015!

my chubby companion all full and filled up :)
I really wanted to shout this out and let the Universe know how much I appreciated this year. It was truly awesome in so many ways that I can hardly grasp it in this busy Holidays time. I will have to sit down in the beginning of January and take in all the goodness that happened for me and around me this year because I need to savor it a bit longer. I'll also write a special blog post just to honor it properly. Luckily I've been good and kept my journal so I can really dig out all the highlights of this amazing year.

I already have a feeling 2015 will be just as awesome :) Why? Well, for at least three reasons:

1. The response to my 12 pages in 2015 Project. So many new creative friends are coming my way that I'm blown away. I'm even going to have a special Sweet Pouch swap with one of them because of my 12 pages :)  Isn't this amazing? Thank you Monika for dropping in and making it happen!

2. Number two has everything to do with my old on-line friends; those I met for real for the first time this year and am hoping to see again in 2015 and those who I am about to meet in 2015 for the first time. I can hardly wait and I only wish air-tickets were cheaper, much MUCH cheaper :)

3. Lila Roger's 2015 Assignment Bootcamp (thank you mom for this wonderful gift ;) ). I'm hoping to get my art to a higher level. I know I don't blog as often as I should/could but those who know me know, I like to illustrate a lot and I would really like to do it professionally again. 

So, my dear friends - new and old ones. Thank you for being here for me and with me and I'll toast tonight to an awesome 2015 for all of us again! See you and read you in 2015! :)  

with much ♥

12 pages in 2015 - Free Project

I might be too excited about this but when I was thinking about what to do with my super neat and pretty recycled art journals I had a lighting bulb go off and I got "12 Pages In 2015!!!". Nothing big you might say, certainly not a 365 Project or even a 52 one but hey... there are other things to do too :)



Here's why I am so excited: I'd like us all to join in on this one. I'd like us to make ourselves a 12 pages booklet and each month, draw on one page of it so that at the end of the year, we'll have a pretty and very valuable piece of art just for us and to remember 2015 by. What say you?

I'll have a special FB group just for this, I'll keep it a secret one once we are all in and we will share our pieces there and enjoy each other's company - because when we share, things get so much better. We will have a different prompt each month to work with but if you won't like it you'll of course be free to draw whatever you'll want - it's your book after all. I will probably make it a bit difficult for myself and will challenge myself to draw 12 faces while still keeping them aligned with the theme.

I'll post a blog post with the theme each month and I'll link to tutorials or anything I'll find useful for us. I'll also post these things in the FB group so I'll have everybody covered - those of you who are not on FB and those of you who are.

So, if you like my little plan for 2015 and if you'd like to participate do let me know. I'd love you to join me and make it happen.

Here's how my newly made art book for this project looks like:
